/ Oakley prescription sunglasses - which lenses?
I've decided to splash out on some prescription sunglasses and need to choose one of the 10 or so lens options.
My use will cross several of their categories so I'll need to pick which compromise to strike. My use will be:
Fishing / canoeing
I'm interested to know what lens tint other people have chosen and why.
So far I've used them for cycling, driving, golf and general purpose and been really pleased. One thing that takes a couple of minutes to get used to is having corrected peripheral vision.
The relatively small extra cost for polarized lenses is a no brainer IMO.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
I've got two pairs of non-prescription sunglasses - one that are a bit rose tinted, great for the kind of cloudy but bright conditions we often get here. The other pair I bought in Moab for desert use and to be honest I find them a bit on the dark side for use in Scotland.
It would help if I knew the % light transmission for each, might have to take a trip to the lab on monday to measure them.
Having spent a while on the Oakley website I'm leaning towards the VR28 Polarised. Anyone using them?
Do you get 2 pairs of prescription lenses with the split jackets?
